This book will serve as the best introduction to the Pratyabhijna philosophy of Kashmir. The Sanskrit text adopted is that of the Kashmir Sanskrit series. The translation is given below each page of the text.

This little work is a digest of the Pratyabhijna system of Kashmir Saiva Philosophy, prepared by Ksemaraja, the illustrious disciple of Abhinavagupta. It avoids all polemics and gives in a very succinct form (20 sutras) the main tenets of the Pratyabhijna presented by Utpala. Pratyabhijna means recognition. Jiva is Siva; by identifying himself with his body, Jiva has forgotten his real nature. This teaching is meant to enable Jiva to recognize his won real self i.e.; Siva and to suggest to him the spiritual discipline needed to attain at-one-ment with SIVA.

Dr. Jaideva Singh has considerably revised and enlarge his translation, and provided a scholarly Introduction, Notes, Glossary of technical terms and Indexes.
